Jagged Little Pill
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you...
Inspired by the groundbreaking album by Alanis Morissette
In the new Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morissette’s “damn near perfect” (Rolling Stone) Grammy Award-winning album inspires Oscar winner Diablo Cody’s “wickedly funny” (The Boston Globe) tale of the Healys, a family whose secrets threaten to shatter their Instagram-filtered lives.
Featuring Morissette’s iconic songs including “Ironic,” “You Oughta Know,” and “Hand in My Pocket,” as well as newly written material, this “big-hearted musical that breaks the mold” (The New York Times) is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), with music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and movement direction and choreography by Olivier Award winner and frequent Beyoncé collaborator Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Now in previews at the Broadhurst Theatre, Jagged Little Pill comes to Broadway after a record-breaking run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
“passionate. dramatically compelling. big-hearted.”
The New York Times
“Not since RENT, has a musical invested so many bravura roles with so much individual life.”
